But the newspaper reportedlate Tuesday that it had "since learned Wahlberg's team actually negotiated a hefty fee, with the actor paid $1.5 million for his reshoots".

Hollywood has been left rocked after reports of a significant pay gap between the male and female stars of All The Money In The World, during the reshoots without Kevin Spacey.

Williams also agreed to work over Thanksgiving, racing to London on an overnight flight and arranging for her 12-year-old daughter to spend the holiday without her.

But a person familiar with the situation but not authorized to speak publicly about it tells USA TODAY that is incorrect.

Actress Michelle Williams was reportedly paid less than 1% of co-star Mark Wahlberg's salary for a 10-day re-shoot on "All the Money in the World". "I refused to get paid", Scott said, but "Christopher had to get paid, but Michelle, no". The pay disparity also reflects poorly on William Morris Endeavor, the agency that represents Williams, Wahlberg and Scott.

Because Williams had already committed to return, Wahlberg had leverage: He was the only major missing piece and the clock was ticking. "She deserves more than 1% of her male costar's salary".

Director Ridley Scott made a decision to cut Spacey from the completed Getty family kidnapping drama after he was accused of sexual misconduct and inappropriate behaviour, and he called on Christopher Plummer to step in and play billionaire J. Paul Getty.

The second reason Williams walked away with what amounted to almost $80 a day for reshoots is that, because Wahlberg's contract didn't necessitate reshoots, he was able to renegotiate his pay for them.

The disclosure of salary details came after Sunday's Golden Globes, which was a showcase for Time's Up, a new initiative to end sexual harassment and gender inequality. Reshoots are complicated in production, based on matters like contract days and talent's willingness to participate. "I had to break the news to my family and tell them I wasn't going be home (for Thanksgiving) and make alternate arrangements for them", she told Vulture. "Because I appreciated so much that they were making this massive effort".

Commenting on the reshoots of the Drama/Mystery - All the Money in the World - Ridley Scott had earlier claimed that the actors happily did the re-shoots.

"It further shows the reason why these kinds of movements are needed to bring attention to the injustices and the disparities that exist between the genders, the staggering pay gap that exists across every business discipline", she said.
